Study of wettability of Eurofer steel by the liquid metal sodium-potassium (NaK-78)

Abou-Sena, A.; Arbeiter, F.

Abstract:
The main mission of the International Fusion Materials Irradiation Facility (IFMIF) is to
provide irradiation conditions, similar to those of the DEMO fusion reactor, for several testing
capsules packed with specimens of Eurofer steel which is the main candidate as a structural
material for the first wall and blanket of the fusion reactor. Using the liquid metal sodiumpotassium alloy (NaK-78) to fill the small gaps among the Eurofer specimens was introduced to improve the thermal conduction among the specimens and achieve uniform temperature distribution. Hence, the wettability of Eurofer specimens by NaK is investigated by two experiments to evaluate the success of this concept. ... mehr
